This event follows on from
Her Noise Archive Symposium
3-5 May 2012
Tate Modern

A three day event investigating feminist discourses in sound, launching with a performance and talk by Pauline Oliveros. The symposium, which brings together contributions by leading artists, performers, theoreticians and writers aims to provide a platform to further develop these emergent feminist discourses in sound and music, with an emphasis on tactics that challenge and / or infiltrate canonical readings. The event marks the donation of the Her Noise Archive to University of the Arts London Archives and Special Collections housed at London College of Communication, and is realised as a collaboration between CRiSAP (Creative Research in Sound Arts Practice), Electra and Tate.
